If you want to walk down to the beach after you meal you will be there in less than a minute. This restaurant in largely overlooked by the tourist visiting the areas as well as the local expats. You will therefore mainly see Nicaraguans in this restaurant. It does however have a small loyal expat following that enjoy the good cheap food and cheap beer. This restaurant deserves more attention than it gets and is a very good option if you are on a budget, enjoy a good lobster meal or both.

Comedor Bertha Menu

Comedor Bertha offers a good menu with fish, lobster, shellfish, shrimp, meat and chicken. It is unfortunately not unusual that items on the menu cant be served due to them being out of ingredients. This is the price to pay for visiting a small cheap restaurant. You can however usually find something else on the menu that you would like so this is not a problem. Bertha serves good cheap lobster and sea food cocktails. It is rare that they run out of lobster and it is a good choice if you are in the mood for lobster.

The drink menu at berthas is limited.


The prices at Bertha are very good and below that you will pay in most other restaurants on the beach. Expect to pay around USD 8 for a meal.


Our opinion of this restaurant is overall good and we think it deserves more attention than it gets despite the fact that they are sometimes unable to serve certain items on the menu and despite the fact that the service is sometimes very slow. The saving grace is that the food is very good , especially the fish and sea food. They also get a plus for being very accommodating if you want to order something not on the menu. We recommend that you ask for their fish finger. They are no longer on the menu but are very good and made from fresh fish caught that morning.

We Recommended Comedor Bertha to:

Bertha is one of the best alternatives for anyone one who wants good food without spending too much. It is also a good option for anyone who wants a more genuine Nicaraguan dinning experience rather than hotel restaurant filled with other tourists. We recommend this restaurant to anyone who wants good food and to all lobster lovers.
